Inquiring Anglers Want to Know (About Tackle)

November 2nd, 2023|Did You Know?|

Did you see Searcher’s catch of wahoo and nice yellowfin? Inquiring minds want to know what they were biting on.

Captain Shane gave us this insight: “We trolled up the yellowfin tuna on Halco billed lures and the wahoo bit DTX minnows, marauders, and bombs.”

Here’s a few past Tackle Tip Thursday videos on these products so you can get familiar before you head out on a long-range trip!

Happy angler and Captain Shane pictured below.

Fall Fishing Forecast from Captain Michael

September 25th, 2023|Did You Know?|

Hello anglers:

We are wrapping up our season of shorter 2 to 4 day trips fishing. Our local bluefin has been nothing short of excellent this year, and we’ve enjoyed a long summer of good fishing. Now we turn our attention to longer trips this fall.

We are getting reports of phenomenal fishing from other boats fishing at spots down south.  We’re hearing that it’s as good as it gets for fishing yellowfin tuna in the 20-40# range. There’s good yellowtail fishing on the beach and a shot for a few wahoo at Alijos Rocks or The Ridge.

Check out the video on Yo-yo fishing for yellowtail to get an idea of the fun fishing!

We have a few spots left on a limited load 8 day in November, my favorite time of year to go down there, as well as a few spots on Ultra-limited Load trips (14 anglers) and a Seeker-sponsored trip coming up in October.


7-day Seeker trip (Sep 30-Oct 7): 2 spots open

7-day Ultra Limited load (Oct 7-14): 1 spot open

7-day Ultra Limited Load (Oct 14-21): 2 spots open

8-day trip (Nov 14-22) Bring home fresh fish for Thanksgiving! 4 spots open

Our summer and spring schedule is up on the schedule as well and filling up quick!
